Copy Gaga’s Out-Of-This World Hair From The VMA’s

With nine different otherworldly coifs, statement-making fashion, multiple awards, and the song of the night, Lady Gaga’s appearance at the MTV’s Video Music Awards was nothing short of spectacular. Raved Vogue Magazine, “Gaga provided the evening’s fashion fix and a timely reminder that wearing a mask doesn’t have to be a chore.”

Not surprisingly, Joico Celebrity Artist – and Gaga’s long-time mane man – Frederic Aspiras, provided the hair-color and styling genius that honored the star’s Chromatica album theme. “Love is the inspiration,” says Frederic. “Bringing all the elements of earth, wind and fire. Lady Gaga’s journey through the years has inspired me to create hairstyles and color combinations that encapsulate this journey. She is tough, brave, a musical genius, a visionary, and an overall kind human being who believes in love and kindness in the world.”
